Penny Mourdant’s paedo brother sentenced for sending sick pics to kids at same time MP gives address in Commons | The Sun

PENNY Mordaunt’s brother escaped jail today after he admitted sexual activity with an undercover cop posing online as a 14-year old girl.

Edward Mordaunt, 44, was sentenced to six months in prison, suspended for two years, at the very moment his elder sister, and Liz Truss’s new Leader of the House of Commons, made a statement in Parliament.

Mordaunt downloaded a social media messaging app and entered a chat forum called UK Teens Are Cool before sending private texts to other users in February.

He created a profile for ‘Eddie F’ and adopted the username ALevelsinLeeds before first exchanging messages with a police officer posing as a 12-year-old.

He told her he was a 42-year-old man and in one message wrote: “Oh wow, you are a little cutie aren’t you?”

The judge said in court: “As a result of the job performed by your sibling, who is a member of Parliament, it is said the way the CPS has approached your case is somewhat different to that of other offenders.

“I don’t believe that has merit.

“I sit here daily and view many of the cases to enter the court.

"As far as I can see your case has not been dealt with in anyway inappropriately or significantly different to any other defendant charged with a similar offence.”

The court heard Mordaunt said he worked in finance, was married and asked her to send him a video to verify her identity before telling her he loved her accent, Leeds Crown Court was told.

The chartered surveyor logged on again at the end of April and began messaging what he thought was a 14-year-old girl called Elle who was, in fact, another undercover cop.

Katherine Robinson, prosecuting, said: “In her profile picture she was wearing a white shirt and dark tie depicting a school uniform.

“The officer again used the forum UK Teens For Chat and engaged the members in a chat about school.

“Mordaunt sent a request to private message Elle and was accepted. The defendant identified he was an adult male and over the next three weeks engaged on numerous occasions.”

He told her she was “sexy” and made him “hot” and suggested meeting up to “get her off” – before offering to set up a sugar baby account for her.


Mordaunt sent photos and videos to the undercover cop of his penis and told her he was deleting the Kik app on a daily basis because he was married.

Ms Robinson added: “He says he shouldn’t be speaking to her and says it is wrong for him to speak to someone of her age.

“He says he hopes he won’t get into trouble and says he has the hots for her before asking if she has done anything with a guy before – indicating full sex.

“The conversations end in May and the defendant is arrested and interviewed."

You said you wanted to take her away somewhere.

Mordaunt pleaded guilty to engaging in sexual activity with a child at a previous magistrates court hearing in relation to the 14-year-old.

The prosecution offered no evidence following his chats with the cop posing as a 12-year-old because the messages exchanged were not of a sexual nature.

Recorder of Leeds, Judge Guy Kearl, said: “You sent images and clips and made comments of a sexual nature and discussed meeting in person.

“You continued to flirt and flatter the person you thought was a 14-year-old. You agreed to meet with her to help her engage in sexual behaviour.

“You agreed to drive to Sunderland to meet her and provide her with money.

“No doubt intended as an encouragement.

“You told her you thought she was sexy and made you hot. You said you wanted to take her away somewhere.

“You asked her to lie to find the time to go with you.

“Whilst you have or had marital differences which may have contributed to your offending behaviour there is also a link to your sexual interest and sexual interaction towards teenage females.”


The judge said he had no previous convictions but was a well educated man with a degree and a masters who had since been sacked by a firm of chartered surveyors.

Sentencing him to a suspended six month sentence he ordered Mordaunt to carry out 150 hours of community service.

He also addressed claims that Mordaunt had been dealt with “unusually” swiftly by the Crown Prosecution Service after his initial arrest before suggesting he had deliberately been “less than frank” with the police.

The Judge ordered Mordaunt – described as being at a medium risk of reoffending – to observe a seven year sexual harm prevention order before telling him that if he returned to court he would be sent straight to prison.
